Austrian-American actor, filmmaker Arnold Schwarzenegger, has been attacked by a man at a show in South Africa. 

The incident happened on Saturday at a sporting event.

The AFP reports that 
the 38th Governor of California from 2003 to 2011 was conversing with fans at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg when a man took a flying leap and kicked him high in the back.

Schwarzenegger confirmed the incident on Twitter saying “Thanks for your concerns, but there is nothing to worry about.

“I thought I was just jostled by the crowd, which happens a lot. I only realized I was kicked when I saw the video like all of you. I’m just glad the idiot didn’t interrupt my Snapchat." 

The 71-year-old was in Johannesburg for the annual Arnold Classic Africa, an international multi-sports festival.

“He was sadly and unexpectedly attacked by a crazed fan as he was doing a walk-through to support athletes,” the organizers said, adding the attacker — who was immediately apprehended — was known to police for similar incidents in the past.

Schwarzenegger told organizers he would not press charges.
